Oneida Public Library News
(Oneida, NY – April 2013) Beth Aust addresses the health issues surrounding the controversial use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the human food supply at Oneida Public Library Wednesday April 17 at 6:30 p.m.
According to the Non-GMO Project, a not-for-profit organization promoting GMO-free food, the practice of GMOs uses genetic engineering principally to increase the tolerance of plant organisms such as corn, soy and alfalfa to herbicides or to produce an insecticide. The group contends that GMOs are in as much as 80 percent of conventional processed food in the U.S., posing risks to health and the environment.
Aust, after 20 years experience as a registered nurse, took up a holistic approach to health and wellness and has taken up the career of a holistic health coach in Oneida. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Women and board certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She currently operates Peake?s Harmony Wellness on Broad St.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, stop by the Oneida Library, 220 Broad St., or call 363-3050.
